Kurdistan

Divisions in disputed areas fuel independence debate

By Hardi Muhammed 9/6/2017
-

The diverse Tuz Khurmatu was once known as the town of salt and dates.

It has now become the Berlin of Kurdistan — divided by war and now a path to peace and governance.

"When to hold the referendum?" said on resident. "Our current situation isn’t good in Tuz … the concrete, towers."

Another local said that "If a referendum is held in Kurdistan and doesn’t incorporate these areas, it’s just tantamount to giving up on these towns."

The people of Tuz Khurmatu must be included in the referendum. At least the Kurdish neighborhoods should also be able to vote. I don't care about the non Kurdish neighborhoods. We have two options: Khurmatu will be devidid or our armed forces clear it from the Iranian puppets. But our people should freely vote on the day of the referendum with the protection of our heroic Peshmerga and Asayish forces against attacks from the mercenaries.

Those bastards are a bunch of Hypocrites.... they say delay only because they want to wait until they have all of their forces ready to attack and kill Kurds once daeesh is gone. They have no intention of ever sitting down and negotiating the demarcation of Borders or sharing of resources in good faith.
